give up on
give more thought to the 'Easter Top', I have started something more likely to be successful. Another top, but this time, I have the correct amount of yarn. At the correct gauge. And not to mention
, in my stash
! YEA!! No bank account will be harmed in the making of this top.
The pattern is Skinny Ribs
from Custom Knits by Wendy Bernard. It calls for DK weight yarn and I am using
Fanion by Phidar, purchased in Nanaimo while on last year's B.C. trip . It is cotton, and made up of several very fine strands of thread plied together. Mine is in shades of yellow and green.
My. My. What a surprise. Brenda is going to have another green top. One of these days, I am going to do a bit of research on the difference (Is there any?) between knowing what colour looks good on a person and being stuck in a rut.
Skinny Ribs is another top-down garment. Like my
waiting Easter Top the pattern starts at the top of the back with a provisional cast-on. You knit down to the armholes and then put the back on hold to do the same thing to the front. I am a couple of rounds away from joining front to back.
From there is should be pretty mindless knitting down to the hem.
Now the question is - should I set it aside to more-likely guarantee an Easter Top will get done, or carry on so I at least finish something?
